of 68-32. that's the bill put together by the gang of 8. john boehner says it will be dead on arrival. in the house of representatives. the house, he said, will do its own -- it will not take up the senate bill for a vote. meanwhile, aired up in boston, aaron hernandez already charged with one murder is being investigated for possibly involved in two more, a couple of years ago. and congress will go home today without doing anything about student loans because they don't care about students. you can comment on all of the above by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. follow us on twitter at bpshow and on facebook at right here on current tv. 1 thing than viewers like about the young turks is that were honest. they know that i'm not bsing them for some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know i'm going to be the first one to call them out. cenk on air>> what's unacceptable is how washington continues to screw the middle class over. cenk off air>>> i don't want the middle class taking the brunt of t

of conservatives in the house, they are not for the vote. certainly senator boehner will not bring the bill to the house floor. we have a lot of senators more worried about a primary challenge than a general election. some of these guys have already started to get primary challenges. so the house is going to move very different legislation. now, relatively noncontroversial legislation, and then it is going to get in conference. that's where the rubber hits the road. the problem is that the house, the big sticking point is the path way to zip -- citizenship. the house does not agree with it. speaker john boehner has said he doesn't like the bill. i think we will see both pass legislation. host: if it is not a pathway to citizenship, what does congress want in terms of the illegals? guest: i think they will do the e-verify, which is a mandate on employers to check the status of people they employ. the senate has not yet been critical of the house. i think that will happen. you will see democratic senators after this passes in the senate calling on the house for a vote on this. that is not goi

boehner, who, as it happens, took his hardest line on immigration reform today, saying the house has no intention of taking up the senate bill, and that even a mere conference committee report must have majority republican support. >> we're going to do our own bill through regular order, and there will be legislation that reflects the will of our majority for any legislation, including the conference report, to pass the house, it's going to -- and have to be a bill that has the support of a majority of our members. >> speaker boehner may want to consider that should comprehensive immigration reform fail, the blame will fall squarely on his shoulders. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington is msnbc contributor maria teresa kumar, who is president of voter latino, and analyst michael dyson. in a week of historic decisions from the judicial arm of government, is it actually possible, sir, is it possible that the legislative branch might just be on the verge of doing something genuinely comprehensive on immigration? >> i'm afraid your right and that's a great thing. >> wha

pressure on speaker boehner not to block immigration reform because that would consign the republican party to minority status, and we have all kinds of allies who are usually conservative pushing for this bill -- the business community, the high tech community, the evangelical community, the catholic bishops, the growers throughout the country. so i believe that at the end of the day, speaker boehner will have to bring a bill, either the senate bill or something much closer to it than people think, to the floor of the senate, even if it means abandoning the hastert rule. he will have no choice as the pressure mounts over the summer. >> there is a difference between the speaker bringing it to the floor and his being able to corral some of his conservatives. there's a delicate line there, as you saw, when it was the farm bill was defeated by this kind of coalition of democrats who were furious that it did too much and republicans who thought it didn't do enough. there is a real chance that this could die in the house. would you concede to that? >> well, no, i think there will be pressure on

and john mccain aren't the face of getting john boehner and eric cantor and others off the ball. >> jonathan makes a really good point, who the salesman is really does seem to matter, right? initially it was thought marco rubio was the right salesman because he himself is latino, a tea party favorite at one point. he was seen as the right salesman as long as barack obama didn't go anywhere near him. now really who in the senate is credible? the rand pauls and ted cruzs of the world didn't vote for the bill. is there anyone in the senate since it's not those guys who can actually sell this bill? >> look at the senate leadership. mitch mcconnell and others. they all ran from this bill, too. "a" i don't know if there's anyone in the senate who house republicans truly respect. "b," if there is, that person didn't vote for the bill. so this bill from the house republican perspective, i think you saw that reflected in the quotes you put forward, is sort of an orphan. you go to a house which is fractious and there's no strong leadership coming and i feel like games of thrones here. the

the speaker boehner's speakership is on the line. what do you have to say? guest: well, two things to say there. speaker boehner's job is on the line in two respects. one, if he loses the house. two, if his conservatives have a coup attempt. we saw that in the beginning of this year. they had kind of a bad coup attempt, and they didn't succeed. some rebels in the conservative caucus. but the chances of the house flipping are unlikely. artly because of grerimandering. so boehner has without a doubt the toughest job in the house. kusack.r guest is bob man ve many stories on the who leaked secrets. out of hong kong, they say edward snowden was leaving the country, headed to moscow. other reports say headed to oscow and then cuba. any update on that story? guest: you have a lot of possible different countries. one of the things that baffles me about the story is that the u.s. could have revoked his passport. so i don't know exactly how he is traveling around his world. i think also different -- this snow diagnosis den is in the world of deception. both the n.s.a. and c.i.a. so i think everyth

,500. and who is their leader of the super villain? john boehner, the speaker of the house! you know, it might be fun to think he's the zod to president obama's superman. but, really, we think he's a little more like gru, you know him, from "despicable me," grand ambitions, minions he can never really keep in line. speaker boehner brought the house's version of the $940 billion farm bill to a vote on thursday, expecting to it pass, and it failed with 62 republicans voting against it. the vote was a shock, as usually house speakers don't bring major controversial bills to the floor unless they know they're going to pass. republicans tried to blame it on democrats, saying they failed to deliver the 40-votes promise. and house majority leader eric cantor even said he was, quote, extremely disappointed that democrats chose to derail years of bipartisan work. but even if gop leadership had those votes, the bill still would have failed. now, i certainly don't envy john boehner's job, corralling house republicans actually does seem a lot like trying to rely on an army of fictional, nonverbal minions

to put pressure on house republicans and john boehner, you can only call last night's vote adequate. the amendment passed 67-27. 15 republicans voted for it, no democrat voted against it. given that 6 senators did not vote, including 2 democrats, the overall legislation remains on track for 70 votes. the sweet spot was 75 plus in the senate because that number would have meant that they would have gotten half of the republican conference. instead, looks like they are not going to get that. republican leader mitch mcconnell felt politically comfortable enough knowing a majority of the conference would be against this he put out a statement slamming the compromise saying this. when i called for a debate on immigration earlier this monta massive bill pushed up an artificial deadline without any real opportunity for review or amendment isn't what i had in mind. remember, he stayed largely silent in this debate until yesterday. now, democrats also had to make some concessions to get the bill through. it includes a provision, for instance, by utah senator orrin hatch that would prevent un

of the republican party. house speaker john boehner says he will not move on the senate's gang of eight bill until it has the support of the majority of the republicans in the house. and it's unclear whether they will support it. the republican party's share of the hispanic vote has actually declined. it fell after president reagan signed the original amnesty legislation into law in 1986. tonight we'll be asking republicans national committee chairman reince priebus about what benefit the republican party would gain from the administration and also hear the chairman of the veterans affair committee, congressman jeff miller on the benefits back log at the v.a. that he calls a national crisis. and the obama white house ungulfed in scandal. we've been asking our viewers to joining us to assess a number of issues that are pretty important to the republican party and the future, issues like immigration, national security, we're joined by the chairman of the republican national committee, reince priebus. >> thanks for having me here. it's a beautiful place. >> well, thank you, we spif it up just for spe

john boehner says he will not allow a vote without the majority support of republican members. we will have more on the immigration bill later in the broadcast. the latest disclosures from nsa documents leaked by edward snowden to the guardian show the u.s. government collected bulk metadata on the e-mails of millions of americans for about 10 years. under a program that fell under the overall nsa domestic surveillance operation known as stellar wind, the government swept up information including e-mail accounts and ip addresses, but not the content of the messages themselves. the program began my targeting e-mails with at least one party outside the u.s., but expanded in 2007 to domestic messages. the obama ministration continue the effort after taking office before shutting it down in 2011. the disclosures confirm the claims of william bennett, the career nsa official turned whistleblower. he said the nsa took an electronic surveillance or graham he developed and used it to conduct mass surveillance on national scale free at he resign from the nsa in 2001 in opposition to what h

[applause] it took a community to choose frederick douglass to represent the capitol joining statues from the 50 states. and the entire congress to bring the statue to the capitol today. i especially find that it was d. c. residents who selected frederick douglass to represent the district and the capitol. our residents are accustomed to hosting national and international visitors who make the district their home. none before or since douglass however have so joined his national prominence and philosophy with the aspirations of the people of the district of columbia. douglass lived here for 23 of his 57 years as a free man. he knew and felt deeply about where he lived. he refused to separate his life in the district from the quality of his courageous life. rising from bondage to becom

, as far as the house, totally different situation. john boehner does not like the senate bill. the house is working on narrow kind of noncontroversial immigration bill. so this -- this legislation has a long way to go, eric. >> do you think there'll be some type of compromise? can there be between the senate and the house or right now there's just too far off? >> no. i think that those talks could go on for months. that's the danger here. is that immigration reform could get bogged down in a conference between the house and the senate. and why? because of the pathway to citizenship. a lot of the conservatives in the house are strongly opposed to the senate bill and the pathway to citizenship. but a decent amount of senate republicans support it. so that's where i think the block is going to be. the house is certainly not going to be moving the senate immigration bill, at least not any time soon. >> you're talking about a sizable number of senators. they talk about 15 republican senators supporting that. can they potentially sway some of the recalcitrant members of the house to see their

that are coming out of my mouth? >> speaker boehner is not running republican conferences, he is one step ahead of the mob. >> this is a very difficult issue. >> some of these republicans got together right away and said, okay, here is our strategy. no to everything. >> no way, jose. >> i don't sebringing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn't have the major support of republicans. >> it'll be dangerous. you go first. >> if it fails and we are blamed for its failure, our party is in trouble. >> republican party has a lot to lose here. >> hello. hello. anybody home. >> tell them that the time for excuses is over. >> . >> maybe. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. take a very good look, close look at this man. you know who he is, speaker boehner. what about the resume? this is man who did everything in his power to stop healthcarery form. this man promised to repeal healthcare and take coverage away from 30 to 40 million americans. this man killed legislation which would have created millions of jobs in america. he couldn't even get a farm bill passed this past

, especially speaker john boehner. >> the immigration bill before the senate is another example of bipartisan legislation. the immigration bill will pass this chamber with democratic and republican votes. and when the immigration bill passes, the speaker should bring it up for a vote in the house of representatives quickly. do the right thing, seek votes from democrats and republicans. america deserves a common sense approach. >> ari melber, this thing as i read says it is going to pass the senate and it's going to pass the senate with this new amendment that strengthens the border provisions. what do you make of that new piece? >> i think that's what they've got to do to get it done. they've obviously said, the democrats, that they want 60-plus, they want the super super majority. but i think that's probably good politics here given that speaker boehner needs a lot of cover to do his job, he will not do his job alone. he needs democrats to help him get republicans on the senate side for cover. and look, this is a lot farther than we we were last time. you've got to remember of course the rep

a major part of the defense of marriage act. speaker of the house john boehner certainly had a more muted response. >> well, as you're probably aware, i was disappointed in the ruling yesterday. i believe in traditional marriage, but there are people on both sides of this issues, with very heartfelt feelings about it. i respect that view. the court made its decision. no plans at this point in terms of how the house would move ahead on this. >> while the response was moderate, the reaction has been anything but. tim huelskamp said he plans to introduce a federal amendment. former arkansas governor mike huckabee reacted to the news by tweeting, quote, my thoughts on the scotus ruling that -- is okay -- jesus wealth. wept. many republican politicians seem any going out of step. "the washington post" put it this way -- less than a decade ago republicans used the issue, and put democrats on the defensive. today, although a majority of republicans continue to opotion same-sex marriage, republicans leaders and candidates are on the defensive. their positions may not have changed, but many are si

was worth the vote. >>> president obama calls speaker boehner from air force one today urging action. but is the bill back to square one when it gets to the house? >> the house is not going to take up and vote on whatever the senate passes. we're going to do our own bill through regular order and there will be legislation that reflects the will of our majority and the will of the american people. >>> texas two-step. governor rick perry lashes out at democrat state senator wendy davis after her epic filibuster blocked a vote to restrict abortions and shut down clinics. >> it's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters. >> now the governor's called a special session on monday to try a vote again. this morning davis spoke out on "morning joe." >> it's a sad state of affairs that politicians like governor perry and lieutenant governor dewhurst have decided this intrusion on a woman's personal decision making should be used as a political pawn for their own higher aspiratio

, much in this opposition stronger than people realize and john boehner has said, i need to have half of my conference on board to bring this to the floor. as of right now they're not close to half of the conference. >> good way for john boehner to go into retirement early, is by striking a deal with democrats on immigration, james carville, and saying i'm going to just -- we don't need a majority. we're going to cobble together the coalition. the caucus won't stand for it because a lot of men and women in that house caucus believe that, like laura engram always says, this is a sellout of the republican party. >> yes. it's going to be a choice he's going to have to make. a majority of the house would vote for this yesterday. i mean they have -- we're talking about the house. to some extent there's an argument that you are going around with democracy really is because they clearly got enough votes to pass it now. for our viewers, the rule that the house republicans had they will not bring up anything that doesn't have a majority of the republicans which they'll never get. >> they've be

really want to aspire to be part of this great country. >> speaker boehner was asked about your efforts. was he encouraging of those efforts and he basically said yes. you should continue your work. it will be part of the discussion going forward. should we take speaker boehner at his word? will your plan when it emerges get that kind of conversation from the republican leadership? >> speaker boehner has been very clear that he thinks this is an issue that has to be fixed, it has to be fixed now, this year hopefully. and i think, frankly, when all -- when push comes to shove, i hate to sound -- look, when push comes to shove, i think something very similar to what we have been working on is the only thing that has a shot of passing the house, of getting bipartisan support, and having a shot to get to go to the president's desk. and the speaker clearly wants to solve the issue. i think we hopefully will have a viable option. >> i would just add -- obviously i didn't vote for john boehner to be speaker. he's -- >> there's still time though. there will be ample opportunity. >> he's a conse

times. the house. the house under john boehner. could they actually pass something real? could they really do it? john boehner apparently thinks he can do it. at least last week when he met with the all-democratic congressional hispanic caucus, he told them that he could do it. he says he has a plan to do it. "in a private meeting with the congressional hispanic caucus on wednesday mr. boehner cited the farm bill process to describe how he intended to move immigration reform through the house." the farm bill process. the farm bill process that he talked about on wednesday is a process that failed spectacularly on thursday. his whole plan for how to pass something difficult is to use the same strategy that he used to fail to pass something easy. eke. this was the stinging and embarrassing loss for boehner. this was the doo-woop move that made one sitting member of congress la mamt to "the hill" newspaper, "we can't even do an f star star star star star star farm bill." that's how they print td. i will not try to guess what the six asterisks stood for after the letter f. this was
